From the microfilm holdings of the Presbyterian Historical Society.
Women’s Missionary Magazine, 1887-1953, provides unique insight into the customs, attitudes, and living conditions of people in Africa, India, China, Latin America, and the Middle East at a time when missionaries were usually the only foreigners residing there for long periods. These monthly magazines, which chronicle women’s mission work of the United Presbyterian Church of North America, feature field reports from around the globe, as well as among African American and Native American communities. Because the magazines were circulated primarily to church members, they are not widely available. The collection includes field reports, photographs, line drawings, poems, sermons, bible lessons, editorials, letters to the editor, and a Young People’s Department.
